Why did Sudhir Chaudhary leave Zee?

Sudhir Chaudhary is said to have fallen out of favour with Zee boss Subhas Chandra and was locked in a power struggle with a new executive.

It’s quite surprising for the news industry that one of the country’s “most popular faces” on TV would leave his show rather abruptly.

Sudhir Chaudhary resigned as editor of Zee News and Wion on June 28.

There was also a power tussle involving Chaudhary and Rajnish Ahuja, chief content officer and editor of Zee News.

Chaudhary’s absence from his primetime show DNA over the last few days had given rise to speculation about his resignation even before the news got out.
